Kristina Podnar is a digital policy innovator. For over two decades, she has worked with some of the most high-profile companies in the world and has helped them see policies as opportunities to free the organization from uncertainty, risk, and internal chaos. Podnar’s approach brings in marketing, human resources, IT, legal, compliance, security, and procurement to create digital policies and practices that, of course, comply with regulation. More importantly though, they unlock opportunity, strengthen the brand and liberate employees to drive innovation. Her book The Power of Digital Policy was released in March 2019.

Getting Projects Out The Door Faster And Less Painful

How many times have you delivered a digital product only to be faced with weeks or months of waiting for release approval? Or better yet, how many times have you had to rework a project because of an unknown requirement that popped up at the eleventh hour?

In this session, we will step through an actual use case of how designers, developers, and agencies can champion and require digital policies to deliver projects that are accepted and released by clients in a timely way. In addition to discussing how to unearth the unknown stakeholders that can hold up efforts, participants will learn a proven 3-step methodology for revealing the true project scope and leave the session with a set of checklists and job aids that help get projects out the door fast and painlessly.
